IMAGITOPIA is a new fantasy fiction podcast and digital magazine produced by Android Press and featuring narrated fantasy fiction plus other fun stuff like author and editor interviews, news and events, and nerd-outs on fantasy tropes and other related topics.
We currently accept submissions of previous published fantasy short stories for REPRINT ONLY to be narrated for the podcast. We'll also publish in print here on the webzine.
Our first submission window opens on September 1, 2023. For more information on when we're open and closed to submissions throughout the year, please see our Schedule.
Submissions are only accepted through IMAGITOPIA's Moksha submission portal. Any submissions received via email or any other method will be deleted without review or response. Email accounts inevitable get tons of spam. So this policy helps make sure we don't lose your submission in the email shuffle. But if for some reason you're unable to submit via our Moksha portal, for example due to accessibility issues, please message us using the form at the bottom of this page, and we'll be happy to make alternative arrangements for your submission.
*We're a womxn and trans run publication. We hope authors of all types and stripes will submit work, but we especially encourage BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, womxn, people living with disabilities, those living in the Global South, and authors from other marginalized populations.
flash fiction: up to 1,500 words
short stories: up to 5,000 words
We currently pay 1 cent USD per word for previously published flash fiction and short stories with a $10 USD minimum.
We accept submissions of fantasy and all its subgenres including but not limited to:
We aren't sticklers. But please use something approximating Shunn Modern Manuscript Format. Most importantly:
12 point Times New Roman or Georgia font
one inch margins
wordcount in top right corner of page 1
Moksha will capture your name and contact information, so don't worry about that, but also
we're not concerned with blind submissions so if your name is on your manuscript, that's okay.
Please keep your cover letter simple. The only things you need to include are:
the subgenre(s) of fantasy your story falls under
a brief synopsis of the story (a paragraph or less. Think logline more than summary)
any self-identification you'd like to share (BIPOC, LGBTQ+, Global South, disabled, neurodivergent, etc).
We currently accept translations only if they've been previously published
in English. Previously published translations are paid at the same reprint
rate as stories that were originally written and published in English.
Please only submit one previously published story at a time.
If you receive a rejection and the submission window is
still open, then you're welcome to submit another previously
You're more than welcome to submit your story elsewhere
while it's under consideration with us. Just keep in mind, as
a reprint market we can't publish your story while it's
currently under exclusivity with another publisher.
If you don't get a response to your submission within 90 days, or if you have questions about the
submission guidelines, then please feel free to inquire by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
